Late on Friday I published a PowerShell Module that gives working examples of using DataToolsMSBuild. All very interesting,go and have a read of my previous post.

One of the things I really want the module to do is to set up all software required for building/deploying. And so  from version onwards there are three new Functions that will check if LocalDb is installed, and if it isn’t then it will download and install. This will always download and install the latest version.

The readme will have all the details on these new features. And seeing as I think build badges are pretty neat, lets add one here -

Coming up soon(ish) will be the option to script rather than publish database changes, and also updating sqlcmdvars in the publish.xml. Exciting stuff!
